Clausen actually looked like a pro QB today

Not so fast, Pantherland. Clausen actually looked pretty competent today. Not perfect, but confident.

The coaches actually took the training wheels off to a degree, and Clausen actually was able to pretty much take advantage of what little time that the O-line was providing and make some plays in the short passing game. This is the first time that he didn't actually look like he was playing scared most of the game, and it would be refreshing to see even more of a progression in that area as the season goes on.

Wouldn't it be nice to see what the kid can do if he had even a couple of seconds of more time on each play? It just makes me wonder what could be. Perhaps Clausen isn't the comprehensive bust that many have assumed.

He looked good when he first came in as relief for Moore, too. We'll see how he looks next game.

Clausen was confident and slowed down a bit. Good job by him today. Goodson looked great too! Steve Smith looked like he brought his heart back out today as well.

Anyone that "assumed" Clausen was a bust based off his play earlier in the season is a fuging retard.

clausen did some good things today, he was mostly taking three step drops and throwing hitches and slants. He also threw a couple nice back shoulder fades, and one nice deep ball to ss. But he still has trouble throwing routes down the field, and over the middle of the field. That will be his inevitable downfall.

imagine if our defense had actually stopped them, or the refs hadn't gift-wrapped them some points...

clausen looked like a pro qb but you're going to need to do more than he did to really thrive in this league. for a rookie he did well though.

Agreed, today was far and away his best day. Of course, it helped that we finally had a 100 yard rusher for the first time this year.

The early fumble, and four bad plays by King hurt us a lot today. Might have had a shot if we didn't get off to such a bad start.

Clausen certainly has a shot at being our starter. Just look at how poorly Freeman played last year, and his improvement this year.

He was better but he seriously needs to get a better feel for clock time. We don't need to be wasting time outs on poo like that.
